Everything came securely packaged. I received everything in the product description and nothing was damaged. I was so relieved, because I new there was light bulbs and delicate rods in the softboxes.
The kit comes with everything except instructions and even though this was pretty simple and easy to put together. If you have never touched a tripod, ring light, or softbox instructions would be nice.
I read a some of the reviews on this kit and a few people mentioned that it wasn't a more heavy duty type of photography gear like what professionals use, but that's perfectly understandable to me. I mean it is a full kit and it's well under $100. I think this perfect for someone like me, a new photographer or as backup gear for a pro.
The tripods are pretty light weight though and could easily tip over. I'm going to invest in a couple of sand bags just to make sure they stay grounded, but I'm really happy that I got it. I took a picture of a couple stuffed animals sitting in a chair, just to see what kind of a difference the softbox lighting would make. WOW! It was an amazing difference. The picture was so clear and bright. I know my review photos and videos will look 100 times better now. Once I learn more about how to position the lighting better. I'll be able to take some great pictures of my grandchildren to send to family and save money on going to portrait studios. I'm excited and very, very happy with my kit.

Thank you for reading my review and I hope you found it helpful. This product was provided at a discounted price in exchange for my honest and unbiased review. My opinions are based on my own personal experience with this product. No monitory compensation was received and I was not required to write a positive review. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission 16 CFR Part 255: Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsement and Testimonials in Advertising.
First I am going to talk about the lights and stands themselves, then I will do a quick comparison to some of the other types of lights I purchased as I would have like to have these comparisons when I was shopping.
A plastic light stand mount is attached to a light bulb socket and the soft box rectangle itself. There is an inner ring inside the softbox that you push back in to the light socket, to open it up (kind of like an umbrella). You screw in the lightbulb, which reaches almost to the edge of the softbox, it's that big! The inside of the softbox has silver reflective material, to maximize light output. Then each softbox comes with a white softening material with velcro on it that you affix over the softbox. From there, you screw the plastic mount on to a standard light stand. It comes with two lightweight ones, but will work with any light stand.
Power is your standard cable, with the switch located near the top of the softbox, which is nice.
Note that they are higher than wide. They articulate up and down and left and right, but do not rotate clockwise or counter clockwise.
-Nice SOFT light... soft enough to satisfy my talent (lol)
-nice 5500k (ish) GIANT SIZED fluorescent bulbs. Close to daylight, which is great cause you can pair them nicely with window light
-easy to move around
-easy to set up
-they come with a nice canvass bag, so you can pack em up and travel with em.
-light output: This is a PRO for interviews, but read carefully, these may not be powerful enough for wider shots and greater distances: at approximately 4 ft from subject I am getting a 2.8 on my light meter shooting at ISO 400 @ 24fps. Considering most cameras can go comfortably to 800ISO, that means you could shoot at key at an F4. I'm trying to shoot wide open on a Canon 35mm at 1.8, but I can attest to this looking great at a 2.8, too.
-For what it's worth my light meter read 285 footcandles at the same distance.
-Cheap! I take price in to consideration. If these were $100 or more this would not be a 5 star review.
-The light stands are light and flimsy, probably gonna break sooner or later. For me, this isn't a huge con, cause I have a ton of light stands. In fact, I wanted something light and easy to move, so for me it is a plus... I just accept them for what they are. I recommend getting a few sandbags to weight them down, especially if you are using them outdoors in a windy area. I did knock one over, and nothing broke, so there is that!
-These tripods do not go very high. maybe 6 feet tops. Great for a seated position
-These are NOT high end professional lights. I know it seems strange to write this here, but sometimes I think people expect perfection for basement prices. What these are, is good soft lighting.
-With the cheap plastic light socket and light stand attachment all affixed to the softbox, if it breaks, your whole unit is basically busted.
-the lightbulbs are so big they push against the softening material at the end, so you see hotspots in the middle. Though to me the lighting was really nice and soft anyway, so I don't care.
-I don't think these would work great as outdoor cinematic night lighting... they really are interview cameras, maybe good for constant fill light for photography. If you're doing a dramatic scene with close ups in a small room, these could work really nice. You just have to know their limitations.
I started with two knock off kinoflow units that I bought on amazon for about 200 bucks each. It's basically 4 strip florescent bulbs in a reflective metallic box with reflective metallic barn doors. These units output the most light, so if you need quantity of light over quality, they may be better for you. However, when aiming them directly at the ladies, the light felt very harsh and unflattering. Side note, I purchased two of these units and the light bulbs are slightly different temperatures in each!
I then moved on to the Diva light ring. I figured - women, light ring, soft frontal light... perfect! And indeed, it was pretty good. And I really like the diva light ring. It's more expensive though, at 285 dollars, but it does some super cool stuff. It can articulate on a stand, dim, very nice soft light, also 5500k. However, there was one flaw! Glasses. One of the women wears glasses and you see a giant white ring in them when she is looking at the camera. There's another flaw - they are best for one subject, you get some fall off on two subjects.
I have a nice LED panel, too, that can dim and switch color temperatures... but I have found that this light is also a little too hard, and also not that bright. I love this light though and use it a lot as an accent light, hitting walls and such behind the subjects. But I would need to invest about 400+ bucks to get LED panels that rival these softboxes as my main lights.
I tried using lights and umbrellas, which to me is more of a photography thing. Just didn't do it for me.
I ended up purchasing these lights and creating your more classic 3 point lighting. I put both of these soft boxes at 45 degree angles to the subjects and now use the diva light ring as a kicker light high and behind, to add some light to their hair. You still see these lights reflected in glasses, but only when the subject turns her head, not when she looks at camera. Also, for some reason, seeing white squares is more forgiving than a giant, strange, white donut. I only use the fake kinoflos pointed at the ceiling as ambient room light. I am looking for a way to get rid of them and create ambient light in a more simple way.
Like anything, you have to know what you're needs are. If you are doing interviews on the go or for vlogging, I think these are great. Especially if you want that soft, flattering look. I actually give them an edge up on the diva light ring - I think the light is nicer.
The other thing, too is, if you are like me and trying to figure things out and learn - get these. They are cheap and if they don't work for you then you didn't waste too much money. But if they do work for you, then you just saved a ton of money. And even as your kit expands and you get more lights, these will always be great backups.
-When you open the bags with the white soft material, you need to flip the edges inside out to properly affix them to the softbox. This may be a duh, but took me a minute to realize.
-If you look at my picture you will see tennis balls scored and affixed to the feet of all my stands. This is an old grip trick we do in TV whenever we shoot on location in peoples houses - keeps from scratching the floor! So buy the cheapest bundle of tennisballs on amazon you can!
